Rifles | 7.62x54R Bolt Action Rifle

Postby caledonianblues » May 2nd, 2016, 10:00 am

7.62x54R Bolt Action Rifle
A classic rifle that has been in service for a long time, and seen its fair share of action. It may look rough but the firing and reloading mechanisms are all refurbished and in top notch condition.

Rated Excellent.
Best ironsights on a rifle in the game. I like the Ironsights more than the K98K Ironsights.

I don't reconmend the scope though the 7.62x54R Bolt Action Rifle seems to be more accurate without the scope, least for me.
The scope isn't as accurate as compared to the arrow point on the other old rifles scope. K98k, 30-06 bolt action, 303 british, etc

The power for the 7.62x54R Bolt Action Rifle is really nice! I've killed a Black Bear with just a body hit before. (I didn't drop the bear but it still died with one body hit)
I have over 1337 kills with my Longbow at 100% kill rate.

Voted excellent. Great looking weapons, fantastic iron sights and hits hard. If you like this style of rifle, it's a must-have.

Vote: Good

Pros: Great Iron Sight, Looks and Sounds great also
Cons: Not sure on the scope as a real addition accuracy seems slightly off

I bought this when it first landed in the store and its a lovely looking weapon, for those who like the older style of rifle it's a must addition to the armoury. It has a great iron sight which I personally believe is one of the best we have on weapons available. It also has a decent amount of power behind it and with a renowned 7.62 it impacts as expected taking down most animals with ease. As I mention above though the only con I have is with the scope, I am not sure what it is but it just does not seem quite right when firing it in comparison to he iron sights.

Rated excellent. By far the best iron sighted rifle you can get, and has a lot of power. Must-have for iron sight shooters.

I also vote excellent. The Iron sights are very accurate and the gun is powerfull enough to double lung shot insta kill a boar at 100m. Animation and sounds are well done.
I like this gun a lot.

Excellent rifle, highly recommended, a joy to use. It's beautifully modeled and textured, it's extremely powerful (comparable to a .300), has great sound effects, great animations, great iron sight and it's glitch free as far as I can tell. Two people claim that the scope isn't accurate, but I don't have that experience. The iron sight is great, but I prefer scopes and after killing more than 1,000 animals with it (many in the 150-220m range) I don't see any lack of accuracy, only confirmed by the 98% hit ratio and 96% kill ratio I achieved with this weapon. Some animals like hogs can get really tiny at 200m, so that's why important to reduce mouse sensitivity to get an accurate shot. I always avoided classic weapons in this game, but this weapon made me decide to buy more and I've grown to like them.
